Abstract: 

This book aims to present the state of the world's deserts, their peoples and their wildlife and also provides a basis for action. It reveals the beauty of desert landscapes and their ecology, and the cultures of the desert peoples. It examines the impact of the changes in global climate and the effects of recent catastrophes. The extensive atlas section of the book maps the world's deserts region by region, charting their growth, agricultural development at their margins, the locations of resources, and pattern of human settlement.
